is the creation of health care exchanges. now, let me explain. these aca exchanges are online marketplaces. in short, websites. the idea is to force insurance companies to play by the same rules and compete for a large pool of customers resulting in less expensive premiums for everyone. here's how it works. let's say you're one of the 50 million people in in country without health care. you're looking to get yourself covered. you'd log on to your state's exchange or call a hotline number. the goal is to shop around for whatever plan works best for you and your family. if you are living at 138% to 400% of the poverty line, that is a family of four living off an annual income of $31,809 to $92,200, then you are eligible for government money to subsidize the cost of your premium. if you're above that level, you don't get the federal subsidy. the law requires every state to have a place for people to shop for coverage. there are three options on how they are created and operated. >> first, states can set up and run their own exchanges or if they're not quite ready to tackle is on their own, st
'll see a cut to health care. the -- plan to actually put the aca into place simply cannot go through with this plan. so we're talking about real cuts to folks' real lives. that's an important point of what's going on. >> fair enough. really more down the road. you heard ben jealous worry about that. let me just ask you -- >> the aca is going to raise health care costs monumentally. >> that's not a budget -- >> yes it is. >> reduce costs for consumers and cut the budget deficit by 1 $180 billion. what's the base of your projection? you're pulling it out of the air. >> no, i'm not. the congressional budget office keeps making costs increase from what they originally projected. now that various individual plans and firms are costing out what they're going to have to do, you're saying far more firms are going to be not covering people. this plan was conceived in a way that didn't understand the economic consequences. >> just to the clarify, the aca, obama care. >> yes. the affordable care act. >> basically protects -- >> anything but protect patients or be affordable. it is orwellian. >
the economic recovery. in terms of health care costs related to the aca, while most business leaders that we have spoken to have said is they understand we needed to do something. small-business owners are impacted disproportionately by rising health-care costs. the current health care plans work for them less well than they do for larger companies because they don't have buying power. if you look at some of the reforms, you see a number of efforts to try to reduce costs for small businesses to, like creating exchanges, for example. small businesses in 2011 paid about 25% more for health care insurance than large companies. you are right. with the new regulations set to take effect in a couple of years, it is another reason to be careful and protect small businesses from tax increases. what the obama people will tell you is that they have cut taxes for small business 17 times and 90% of the small businesses in america would not be effected by higher individual taxes. host: here is "the miami herald" this morning. pennsylvania. independent caller. caller: he said it earlier when they go to wa
. the attention now needs to be on medicare inside the aca. there were large structural reforms in the way healthcare was playing out. in fact, last year, we had a slower rate of growth and health care spending that we have had in quite a time. whether president has proposed is part of the current negotiations is another $300 billion cut in medicare. stuart: that is a cut. you do understand, that what we really -- >> stuart, that just is not true. we have not seen them play out. certainly, we will have to be coming back every year. usually, through a committee process where people vote at the end of the day. the republicans decided to take another course around the debt ceiling. i do not agree with you. i think to say otherwise is unfair to the president. stuart: i will have the last word. he is a hypocrite. let's not get into it now. you study up on that one, young simon. thank you very much. several states want longer school days. surprise, surprise, the unions are against it. that is next. ♪ only gaviscon® forms a protective barrier that helps block stomach acid from splashing up- re
that you have the aca, that you can have this discussion in a way that was much harder to have before. it is really a way of saying for those who are able to continue working, can we begin to reorient the expectation for the next generation which is what we're talking about, recognizing that for people who are in that pre, now premedicare age, they will no longer have to postpone taking care of health care because they, in fact, have an option. so it is why this discussion takes on a whole different tone as a result of the affordable care act having been passed. >> i mean, i would say we have options, but we don't know if they're affordable options, and that's really the big difference. >> al milliken, am media. what can we learn from other countries? i'm wondering if any of you have studied the health benefit programs elsewhere, and do any have comparable insurance programs, and what has been the experience in other nations? >> most of them are struggling mightily with the promises they are made which encourage people to e retire even earlier tan they do in the united states -- than
of instructive closure. i was with him in aca aca laska- he gave one of the most amazing tributes i had ever heard. i made him promise that he would teach me how to speak like that. [laughter] he said, what do you mean, chaplain? i said i want your eloquence of diction, i want your brilliance of metaphor, i want your poetry of imagination, and he smiled and dis missed my request. i had the opportunity of reminding him at walter reid that he still had unfinished work to do with me, please. i still need your help. i was blessed to be able to hold his hand. i was blessed to be able to recite the scriptures, and the last passage that i recited before he transitioned from time in to eternity, is the passage with words that have been whispered by more people in trouble, spoken in more hospital rooms, uttered by more dying lips, and than perhaps any other words in scripture. the 23rd osama bin laden. i-- psalm was standing bind you. the lord is my shepard, i shall not want. he makes me lie down in green pastures, he leads me beside still waters, he restores my soul. he leads me in the path of right
't aca republican offer to cappadocians and bring in a lot more money? why are they insisting on actual rate increase although the other side hates the rate increase worse? >> the democrats are convinced they win the election white house because they want the top rate to go higher. that is a concession that is mandatory for political cosmetic reasons. dennis: are you at all concerned john boehner has made this new concession, let's lift rates without still anything in the way of specific spending cuts, does that bother you? >> there has to be a change, more names i medicare recipients and there probably is going to be out in the distance higher eligibility age may be going up by two years. he has to sell it to his caucus. i would be a little surprised they announced a final deal in the next half an hour because he has to meet with his troops. a lot of them will have to swallow hard to raise rates. dennis: republicans seem to be getting all the blame if we go over the cliff. what you can do two or three most important things to avoid, what do you have to fix ahead of time? >> you have to
